Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder

After my spending ban one of the products consistently on my wish list was the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder.  I see so many of the YouTubers I watch and blogs I read raving about it (namely Tanya Burr) that I thought I'd give it a re-try.  I used to use this when I was a young teenager but I think it's fair to say, that was a long time ago and it was a different product back then.  I know previously lots of people had complained that the lid would just lift off, so not great for your makeup bag, but it seems they've updated the packaging now so it's a twist on lid, yay :)





My Thoughts

It's true that this is a very different product from the one I used to use years and years ago.  I didn't like it back then (too heavy and cakey) but I love it now :)  I apply it with a fluffy brush to set my foundation, that way it's not too heavy either.  Now, it didn't keep me shine free all day (I do have particularly oily skin), but it kept me matte for longer than any other powder I've used, and instead of going shiny, I'd be more dewey.

All in all it's a great product, one I would definitely re-purchase.  Rimmel have certainly upped their game compared to what they were like when I was a teenager - impressed!

Where to find it: In Boots and Superdrug (and online)

  4. I'm still of the unpopular opinion about this powder! I don't like it at all, I think it's because I'm so pale that even the "translucent" shade comes out yellow on me!

    1. Aww, well nothing can be perfect for everyone :) The Maybelline Fit Me powder is pretty decent too, and of course, Chanel :)

  5. I love this product. I thought nothing could compare to my beloved MAC MSF Natural, but this is equally as good (if not better) and a fraction of the price - winner winner!

  6. This is my favourite powder, I haven't used a different one for about six years now! I'm glad they've changed the packaging, my current one is very cracked, definitely not good for the make up bag! xx

  7. I'm using this for a while and so far I'm impressed. I've never used it before so don't know what the old lid was like but I can't say I'm that impressed with it still, it doesn't feel secure enough for me.

    1. The old lid just slid on and off, so would come off very easily, was even like that when I was a kid and tried it like, 15+ years ago :P
